Hay Attack

It is cold again today. I watched the temp drop from about 14 down to single digits as I picked Kendall up from Girl Scouts, and then after karate it was 1F in town, and –4F on the low as we came home. Altitude matters, and that low was in the gully that you pass through coming into the neighborhood. It was back up to –1F at the house.

Which made for a cold horse feeding. After getting the kids down, I went back outside, bundled up, annoyed with myself for not wearing boots. I had the snow mocs, so it wasn’t bad, but I did get a little snow I my socks. I hurried, trying to get 3 wheelbarrows of hay out since it’s so cold, and I managed to kick a lot of hay dust in the air.

That gave me a few nice coughing attacks as I tried to close down the house for the night, getting dogs situated and Delaney to bed. At first I wasn’t sure why, but then I realized that a tight chest and coughing were from the hay. Benedryl and a shower helped a little, but not a lot. I’m tired, and I think I need some sleep now.

Hopefully I’ll feel better tomorrow, with a busy day of work and the maid coming.
